Comtech Announces Heights Dynamic Network Access Technology at SATELLITE 2017

Comtech Telecommunications will be introducing the revolutionary Heights™ Dynamic Network Access (H-DNA) technology for the Heights Networking Platform at the SATELLITE 2017 exhibition in Washington, D.C. With H-DNA, the Heights platform offers an uncompromised step change in performance and a vehicle to provide an exceptional end user Quality of Experience, clearly differentiating the networking solution from all others.

The platform is engineered to elevate service levels, via unparalleled horsepower, efficiency, application optimization and intelligence, addressing the needs of satellite operators and service providers of all scales. It meets the demands of traditional Fixed Satellite Services (FSS) wide beam operation while providing distinct advantages for those using or considering migrating to High Throughput Satellite designs.

Heights Dynamic Network Access (H-DNA) is a dynamic network access technology designed for the Heights Networking Platform’s return links. It is fast, flexible and uncompromised, delivering unprecedented benefits to users, service providers and satellite operators alike. The culmination of new waveforms, enhanced bandwidth management algorithms and robust multi-layer Quality of Service (QoS) make this return access scheme highly dynamic and automatically able to react to real-time traffic demand, providing best fit solutions based on customers’ service level agreements and network policies.

The H-DNA rapidly adapts to changing environments and delivers superior efficiency and Quality of Experience (QoE). It can provide sub-second reaction time to changing user demand and link conditions without introducing the excessive jitter and latency normally associated with any comparable technology. Additionally, as H-DNA leverages the VersaFEC-2 high-performance LDPC waveform, Adaptive Coding & Modulation, Dynamic Power Control, IP optimization, low framing overhead, multi-tier QoS and WAN optimization, it delivers the most user IP bits per Hertz and most robust reliability compared to any other solution in its class.

It instantly assigns capacity based on network-wide demand and intelligently utilizes total network bandwidth at all times. It ensures that bandwidth is instantly made available to users and sites across the network as demand changes. It also allocates all available bandwidth per user demand and configured service level agreements ensuring that all capacity is used at all times, providing both maximum performance and the best possible monetization opportunities.

Comtech EF Data is offering a 30-minute H-DNA Technology Briefing at its booth at SATELLITE 2017.
